Mass Effect Skin

AUGUST 8TH UPDATE

I've hopefully fixed the weather now, but not positive. Also, the download and install size has been reduced by about 30%.

I don't think I'll be supporting this anymore, seeing as I haven't worked on it in a long time and the amount of work required for a nice major update would be too time consuming.

Remember, you can edit the skin and redistribute it, so long as you give credit where credit is due. The skins from both UrulokiBurning and RickF7666 are both based on this, and they both look great. MOD YOUR SKINS AND SHARE :)



You will need a program called CoreTemp for the temperature display to work properly.


Other things you may need
You will need Rainmeter to run this skin. You can download Rainmeter from rainmeter.net/RainCMS/


To properly display the temperature gauge in the older skin, you will need Speedfan www.almico.com/speedfan.php


Make sure to change the weather code to your location. If you need help rainmeter.net/forum/viewtopic.…

Possible bugs and errors
A word of caution, this was developed in Vista 32 bit, but has been tested and shown working in 32 bit and 64 bit Vista/7 systems (I'm not sure about XP). However, I have had a lot of complaints about bugs. I've never taken any programming in my life, I only know what I have self taught. I know for a fact the RSS reader included is screwed up.


Making the Launcher work
You need to specify your own program paths for the app Launcher. The Launcher skin has been reworked and now includes an EDIT button. Clicking the button opens a text file that can now be used to change the name that appears for the App and the Application path.
